Celebrate Halloween by reading the StoryWalk® book, The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams. On October 31st, the pages from this wonderful children's book will be posted from 10 am to 6 pm on the library grounds for all to enjoy. This story is great for people of all ages, including toddlers. The StoryWalk® story is a candy-free addition to Halloween and will be available rain or shine. Children must be accompanied by an adult, costumes welcome!
StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children's book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the trail, you're directed to the next page in the story.
StoryWalks® have been installed in 48 states and four countries, Germany, Cananda, England and Bermuda. They are always received with appreciation.
StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and has developed with the help of Rachel Senechal, Kellogg-Hubbard Library and Nancy Schulz, Vermont Bike & Ped Coalition.
